GDP #13 a Challenging colour Challenge

It's been so long since I was able to participate in a challenge but I have really enjoyed looking at all the entries each week in the Global Design Project. The design team are amazing and I have learnt quite a lot from the sidelines. But this week I'm just jumping in while I can.

It's a colour challenge with old olive so a real Challenge for me as it's my least favourite green!
 I have gone with some simple sponging and a random pattern using the large dots stencil sheet and a sponge dauber. The little flowers are stamped on vellum in real red, and the ink is on the reverse,  and the sentiment is from the Sheltering Tree set. I watched a You tube clip recently on making your own enamel dots from paper. (found the link, it was the Frugal crafter), its' so easy and it worked! punch out small circles of paper, burnish them with your scoring tool into a dome then heat emboss them with 2 layers of clear embossing powder, bingo! Not sure if you can see the shimmering edges to the olive circles?



I played with white edges to the bouncing balls but  ended up highlighting them with Wink of Stella - I love, love, love this product and it's coming in the new catalogue hooray.

Thanks for looking,

Liz
